MIT App Inventor Hackathon 2020

Message from the MIT App Inventor team

The MIT App Inventor team is pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring a worldwide hackathon during the week of July 12-18. This hackathon is being held as a substitute to our App Inventor Summit, which unfortunately we have had to cancel due to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. That said, we are really excited about the opportunity for people around the world to compete in a hackathon to make a difference using MIT App Inventor. We have assembled an amazing team of organizers from around the world to help us. Please check out our hackathon website to learn more and register to participate. Registration is open through June 19.

You are 100% right.
Also you can’t use extensions if I am not wrong (It is same as KodeJam).
